Many couples yearn to have both a baby boy and a baby girl in their families. Both boys and girls can bring much joy into the home. This article is about how to conceive a baby boy, so you can add more color to your family—though, of course, the most important thing is not your baby's gender, but his or her health and the happiness of the family.
The Three Steps to Conceive a Baby Boy Naturally
1. Diet -
Foods rich in potassium and sodium will help you maintain an alkaline cervical discharge, which is more amenable for conceiving a baby boy.
A woman's diet is extremely important in baby planning because the correct internal acidity is theorized to help the Y sperm move faster and live longer. The Y sperm requires an environment that is more alkaline in nature; in other words, the PH level of the cervical discharge of a woman's body needs to be less acidic.
One thing that helps determine the PH level of cervical discharge is the food that you eat. If you want to increase the chances of conceiving a baby boy, you need to include in your diet foods that are rich in sodium and potassium, such as pickles and bananas. Orgasms are also said to help the cervical discharge become more alkaline.
2. Ovulation Planning -
To increase your chances of having a baby boy, plan to conceive as close as possible to ovulation.
This is pretty straight forward. As explained above, the Y sperm does not live as long as the X sperm. This means that insemination should happen as close to ovulation as possible to have a baby boy. Track your ovulation period so that you can know when is the right time to "do it" with your partner. As a rough rule of thumb, your ovulation period occurs about 16 days after the first day of your last menstrual flow. You can also buy an ovulation kit to determine when the best time to have a baby boy would be.
3. Intercourse Position -
Lastly, when trying to conceive a baby boy, use positions that allow for deep penetration during intercourse.
The third step is to actually give the Y sperm a head start in reaching the egg. Again, the Y sperm generally moves faster than the X sperm but cannot live as long as the X sperm does, so getting the sperm as close to the egg as possible gives the Y sperm an advantage.
During intercourse, use positions that allow deep penetration so that the Y sperm is able to reach the egg as quickly as possible.
No matter what, enjoy your path to parenthood. You will conceive the baby destined to complete your family. Best of luck!
